The hunting down and capture ot horse thieves In this city Is the work ot one man and he is kopt busy pretty much all the time. The officer has a reputation for shrewdness that extends for a consider able distance Into the country, and every horse-thlet of any prominence knows "Jim" Morgan, and no doubt mourns the day when he made his involuntary ac quaintance. When one thinks of the vast number of rigs that are driven off from itreet-corners dally by horse-thieves It will readily become apparent that Morgan has no easy berth. He has also been very successful In his line of business. Out side of catching uorso-thleves this officer ha little to do. "The horse-thlevln g bus iness," said the detective, "is somewhat peculiar (or the reason that men who fol low such a Hue of business never glv any attention to burglary, sand-b agging, or klndrod occupations. But they art Ulkors and sharks of the worst kind. They are usually a well-dressed class, and , enter a man's buggy and drive it off with about as much nonchalance as If it were tholrown. If arrested they protsst in the most vigorous terms, and are ready to produce credentials that would convince any one that they are honest men; but when a horse-thief pro duces 'credentials' after making a bluff set him down as a smooth man and worth watching." "How do you manage to catch them?" "It's queer, but you seldom flud a well drossod person driving a jaded horse, and perhaps buggy, on the street. He doesn't do it because ho likes it, but becausj he wants to dispose of it at the first op portunity. Well, I ha-ve a rig of my own, and when I sight one of those follows I Just follow him. The first place he will go to is a livery stable or auction house, and thero, on account of his family, etc., he will sell it for a 'song.' That fellow Is arrested and locked up. Possibly the owner Is busy some place and doesn't think of horse-thieves troubling him. When he reach os the sidewalk he finds his property gone and ' then be reports it. Generally the rig la at the station when the owner calls. The story Is told him and he assists In giving the well-dressed man a house at the expense of the State." "What class is most difficult to cap ture?" t "They have various schemes, Just as burglars and 'climbers," but the gang that dye the horse and have the rig repainted are the best In the business." "How do they work?" i "Walk along the street and sight a rig that Is worth stealing. When they find it unoccupied they jump in and off they go. -A' ell, that class of customers Is difficult to handle. Instead of going and selling tba rig outright, thoy drive to some stable where peoplo of their class hang out, and there the horse is dyed. If be is gray be is soon dyed brown, and would doceive the owner were be to see the animal after un dergoing the process, Thon the stars la the forehead are dyed, or perhaps the llmbr are dyed and tho star loft untouched. A horse Is generally recognised by such marks, but when they aro dyed black, brown or gray, of course any one would become puulud. Then the rig Is painted. If It's black it's painted red or yellow, and identification for tho time Is out of the question. Wo raroly catch such fellows, but keep a man on the lookout for horses that are driven Into barns whore a dye shop is kopt." "Aro there many dye-bousos In Chlca go?" "Two; one on the South and one on the North Bldo." "Are there many professional horse thieves in Chicago?" "No; they'ro looming trades in Juliet." KE WAS TAUGHT THAT WAY. A School Olllcer Who Claims the Right to Murder the I'renUlent's English. Dcs Moines Mail. An Ohio school-teacher went over to a country district In Indiana to engraft a little knowtodge upon the youthful sprouts in that vicinity, ami one of the school trustees used such grammar that the Buck eye pedagogue was threatened with hys terics. After two or three weeks he felt that he know the trustee woll enough to speak to him about it. "Why is it," bo asked, "that you persist n saying 'have saw,' 'have came,' 'knowed,' and other things equally as an grammatical?" "Because I was toached that way by my parents," replied the trustee. 'But, good hoavens, man, you should know better than to continue to mur der the English in that style." "Look here, young roan," answered the trustee, hotly, "I've got a right to murder the English." "No, you haven't." "I know bettor. I'd like to know if my grandfather wasn't In the war of '11 and his father at in the revolution, and they both done all they could to murder the English, aod I'll be danged it I'm goto' back on the family record. If you don't like It, all you have to do Is to scrimmage round and git money enough to take you back to Ohio wbar you eome from. That' the kind of a school trustee this chicken Is, an' yon needn't try to teach him none of your new-fangled notions."! - Collared the Orand MngnU London Standard. The very afternoon that the Ooneral Post-pfllcs bad been declared In A state of siege on account of the recent dynamite explosions, (here presented himself at an entrance to the inner regions of th build ings a stranger, tall, of the visage mild, of th hair grlxsled, having something of th statesman, th servant and th shop keeper man ot affairs In on word. , Th policeman on duty seeing, as h thought, something furtiv and conscious In th air and carriage of th thoughtful stranger forthwith formed a shrewd suspicion, and demanded his business. The mild stranger said he was the Postmaster-General, whereat the gendaraie laughed lustily, and,' laying visible hand on the collar tf Mr. tibaw Lofevre, marched him Into the sanctum of the Secretary, on the bold chance that be might turn out Dynamite Kossa himself. The occurrence caused a flutter in clerkdom, which enlightened and frightened tho Constable, who saw by the fashion in which the department fell down and worshipped that he had indeed pro faned with rude touch the Grand Mogul himself. The Postmaster-General took the thing in good part, and even, It. if said, tipped Robert a reward for his Intel ligence and activity. A DIVERTING YARN. A Man Who Claims to Have Swallowed Three Pounds of Tacks. ' Atlanta Constitution. "See that man?" said one gentlemin to another yesterday, at the same time point ing to a neatly-dressed, round-faced, good-looking son of Erin who was passing by. "Yes. What about him?" "Why, that's Dennis O'Lenry, a light ning carpet-layer, and I'll bet he has swallowed a peck of tacks In bis time." "Well, I'll bet he hasn't," was the re ply. "I'll even bet that be hasn't swal lowed one." "Done," said the gentleman, as he called Mr. O'Leary back and Introduced him. "Dennis," said the gontloman, "how many tacks have you swallowed since you began laying carpots?" "Oh, I don't kdow," replied Mr. O'Leary, with a rich Irish brogue. "Why?" "Well, I just said that you had swal lowed a peck, and my friend here bets me that you never swallowed one." "Then he has lost, for I have swallowod lots of tacks and nails. "The deuce you have? ' Swallowed nails?" "Yes, I have been laying carpets for years, and I guess 1 have got outside ol three pounds of Iron since I begun." "Don't it hurt you?" " Ob, no. I remember distinctly the first tack I ever swallowed. I was then learn ing carpet-laying. I was helping to put down a fine 'blanket In Vanderbllt's resi dence in New York. I bad my mouth full of tacks and one slipped down my throat. It was down almost before I knew it. II scared me to death. I sprang to my feel spit the tacks out of my mouth and declared that I would die because I had swallowed a tack. The other workmen", all old hands silh stomach's (ull ot taaVs, laughed at me and told me I'd get used to It You set a carpet-layer ain't got time to put hit finger in a paper of tacks every time h wants one, so bo fills his mouth full and they come handy. Well, after swallowing that first tack I was careful how I filled my mouth (or a long time, but finally an other and another tack went down until 1 becamo accustomed to it, and now I don't care a cent (or swallowing a tack." "And it don': hurt you?" asked the re porter, who bad listenod with Intorest to Mr. O'Leary 's story, delivered In a rich brogue. . "Not one bit. Somehow It's luck, I guess the tack goes down head foremost and never bo hers me. I never heard of a carpet-layer being hurt by lb Why, I have swallowed a hundred nails" "What?" "I said it, I have swallowed a hundred nails. So has any carpet-layer who has worked. The nail that Is used for curtain fastenings, etc, is a long slim nail, about an inch long. I have had these nail slip down like grease. Once, and only oncn, did I have trouble. Then a tack goWodged. r in my throat. It botherod me a little, byjt I just filled my moith with butter, gave a gulp, aad down went tack, butter and all. But good-day," and away Mr. O'Leary went. ' A GLIMPSE OF STREET LIFE. A Tramp Who Had a "Pressed Brick" Paated In Ilia lint. "Man About Town" In X. Y. Star. "Say, boas, could you tell me how I might get a passage ticket to Norway?" was th salutation I received frpra a tall, thin tramp the other day. "Have you friends in Norway?" "No, sir," he promptly rejoined, with a suggestive twinkle la bis eye, "but I'm out o( work, and 1 think I could strike a good opening over there." "What is your trade, or what could yon hope to do in Norway?" Pulling oft his hat, be took from th In ner band of it the half of an old playing card, on which a newspaper clipping was carefully pasted. He handed it to me, and I read as follows: . "In Norway hotels, cigars, cigarette, stationery, seltser water, wine and similar articles are placed accessible to gnests at all times, and when settling time cornea the landlord take the word of th guest as to how much of each h has eaten or drank." "Oho I" said I, "are you frank enough to tell me that you would like to go over and play th deadbeaton these honest and hospitable people?" ' "Never!" exclaimed my tramp, with A tcne and gesture that Lawrence Barrett could hardly excel. "You sej, sir,' as soon as this thing get widely known, there will be a regular rush of fakirs, bank cashiers and such to Norway, and they will bankrupt th poor natives. If I can get over ahead of th crowd, I ean warn the hotel-keeper and earn their eternal gratitude. Perhaps, sir, oa could' give m a dung) to help toward getting m Steerage passage." I had to laugh as I dropped htm a dim. "Now," I added, "won't yon tell me) squarely how you make, out on thl raoket?" . "Wall, bo, whan I mt a gentleman who oaa enjoy a llttl Joke, sv.a wheat it finds birth with a poor devil in a shabby coat, he generally helps me along.' If X asked him at the start to 'help poor man,' he wouldn't listen .to me; but the cbeek and novelty of this racket tickle him. You may believe me or not, but I'm a hatter out of a Job, and I've never been In Jail or the poor-house. ' By and by, when business improve, I expect to go back to my trade. I had to invent thl little gag to keep me going In the mean time. I found this paragraph In a Phila delphia newspaper." He Got Even With Him. 1 Danbary New. ' A Danbury man was sure some one was tampering with his meal barrel. He drew a pencil line to show just how high In the barrel the meal was, and the next morning the meal was fully two Inches be low the mark. Thon be had his Idea, which was to set a steel trap in the meaL It worked well, and when he next visited tho place the trap was gone, and there was a good deal of blood about, at which he chuckled greatly and told his neighbor, who praised bis shrewdness, and together they , kept watch (or some one with damaged flngors. Before they found him, this shrewd man went in haste oae morning to tho barrel to take out meal.

My informant's first recollection of Mrs. Goodnow dates back mora than half a century, when be was sent to her by his father to have his measure token for a pair of custom shoes, she being1 re garded at that time as one of the best of shoemakers. Beside doing custom work she used to take out stock from th shoe factory of Daniel Newton, of Westboro. There was no part of th trad but what she understood thoroughly. Boon after Miss Coolidge, for she was then single, bought the Joan Green farm, on Ball Hill, and built a house thereon, In which ah lived up to the time other death. A A farmer she was known far and wide. As a judge of .horseflesh h was regarded a flrst-claas,' and in horse jockeying she was a pronounced success. Her trading mania led her to deal In cattle, household goods, wagons, watches, and to speculate In grain; In fact, anything in which she thought there was - a dollar. Her - ability to buy more for a dollar than any ooe els brought her service into domand, and more than one young mar rled couple has been accompanied by her la their visits to Worcester to procure th housekeeping utflt, when she could buy third more for the same amount ot money than the brightest groom. Miss Coolidge commenced farming with a horse and two cows, her stock soon being Increased to two borsos, fifteen cow and a paXr of oxen. As a muscular phenome non she was noted, and with her 3U0 pounds of avoirdupois, much of which she had de veiopod into hardoned muscle, few men cared to follow her load lu manual labor. Armed with an iron bar she would go into tho field and lay stone wall with the best of the sterner sex. As tobandllnga vicious horse, holding a plow, or swinging a scythe, she asked no odds of anyone. e)be would take her dinner and labor lu the hay-field all day with the most sturdy farm-hands. Frank Green, a neighbor, who owned a good farm, entered into A contract with her that the property of which ever should die first should go to the survivor. She was shrewd enough to have htm deed I bis place to heron the conditions named. When the property came into her possess ion, at his decease, she sold (he same to Cxrus Galo (pr $0,000 cash. Subsequently to this Henry Goodnow worked for her a long time. His saved bis wages, which with what be ha) I before, amounted to $1,200. The Woman turned her business eye toward the hired man and the $1,200, and thinking, probably, that it would b cheaper to have him (or a husband than as an employe, married bim, and induced him to put bis $1,300 Into a plec of pasture land, making ure that It was deeded to her, which it was. He died about fifteen year ago. In later years her ventures were not a successful a In former times, and she died leaving nothing of her former possessions for relative to sqnabble over, although she had enough to carry hei through life. This uncommon woman was not a mas culin In her manner a would naturally be supposed, while no on aver wanted sym patby or practical aid but what he got It. Her horse, oxen, or farming implement wer readily lent to help out leas pros perous neighbor, but on a trad she had no special scruple, and want for th best.nd of th bargain at every chance. Notwith standing her muscular power and long as sociation with man and man's work, sbt was excessively timid, and ot death had an abnormal fear. News about Town.
